Damn you know how to write a haiku. The butterfly one? A-mazing
You totally nailed Angela (twss) and I loved the use of the 'Jim's my friend, apparently' just works so perfectly
Ugh Roy is SUCH a tool here. I can't wait til Pam kicks him to the curb
Please update immediately. Thanking you graciously old chap

I hate how Roy's stringing Pam along like this. Like she's just something for him to use when it's convenient for him. He gets to put in almost zero effort and still gets all the rewards. That really irks me. Is it wrong for me to hope that this lunch date goes bad in someway shape or form for Pam to finally see what a tool Roy is?
Interesting that Pam thinks how nice it is to feel wanted. She gets the same kind of attention from a much nicer source and it even gives her better feelings. Seriously one of her friends needs to just tell it to her straight. Roy is a loser and she's got the potential for something so much more. That she's lying about the intent of her pupil poem and justifying her private one speaks to how her mind is going for sure. Really hoping she sees all this sometime soon.

Very funny ending. Roy's reaction to missing a date was great as well. I was also reminded of Pam's giddy reaction to jim playing basketball in Season 1. Interested to see where this will go next.
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad it reminded you of that, I try to link in bits from the show in little ways to have that connection to the original material.

Well obviously I loved this, but oh my god, Pam's pets names I FREAKING LOVE THOSE.
Biggest question of this whole chapter that I need immediately answered: did Jim view her story!?
Of course Pam was listening to Posty. What a queen. What a king.
I reallllllly wanted to shake the pair of them while they were sat on the bench, thank god for their hug.
You've said it won't be long til the next update, so I'm going to hold you to that. CAN'T WAIT!
I just had to add Mitchell in once I decided on Joni! Yep, Jim saw her story. Hope that helps you sleep at night. I too wanted to shake them, but they gotta live through their college-angst-naive-stubborn-thinktheyknowbestcostheythinktheyregrownup era. Also apologies for forgetting to give you credit for the jello and getting me out of stuck mode. Absolutely inspired.

Trust your friends and trust your gut Pam! Roy's not worth it. Can't remember you have a date, can't remember your favorite coffee, he's not worth it. Especially when you're hitting it off so well with Jim.
Lots of fun to see some show elements like the jello prank show up too. Clearly she's got Jim on the mind and he's got her on his mind too. Hope that keeps going once she finally realizes that Roy is a dead end.
I'm yelling pretty much the same at Pam while I write her! But we all know back in college you think you're grown up and know whats best and that you don't need your friends telling you what to do, so Pam needs to get through that phase. I have to give some credit to MrsK for the jello, she got me out of a 'stuck' moment! Thanks for the review :)

I love this already! The idea of a modern day teen Jam is amazing! Already need Roy out of the picture with the bits of info on him we have so far! Pam can do better! Her being flustered by Jim was all kinda of funny/adorable! You've rocked this so far, can't wait for more! Xx
Author's Response: Thank you! So much fun to write a modern teen Jam and put them through the highs and lows of college life... even though it includes Roy!

So it seems like Pam and Roy are kind of a thing, but he's not around very much and is already starting to blow her off. The fact that Pam's mind is also wandering away from Roy adds to this. If she was in a really good relationship with her guy, why all the thoughts of Jim and sexy chef? Just my take on it.
Anyway, kind of fun to see into her world here. The clandestine artist. The budding friendship with Jim. How she views her friends. I also really like it that she has some close girl friends. Hopefully they'll be able to provide some perspective as everything unfolds.
Author's Response: Yes, it's been fun to paint a picture of their relationship before introducing Roy and interacting with him. We don't get to see much of Pam's friendships in the show so its a great space to explore them here, especially in college at an age where every decision feels so big. Thanks for the review!

Boooo - Roy needs to go already and we’ve not even gotten to him yet! That was a fun chapter, looking forward to reading more.
Author's Response: Thank you! I feel that way about Roy too, and its fun dropping in hints of the state of the relationship before he's shown up in the fic.

Marina is baaaaackkkk!!! I feel she's gonna be a great influence in this fic.
Also, sexy chef yayyyyy!!! Also, another great influence
Love the Jam interaction here and how flustered Pam already is by Jim.
Can't wait for more old chap
Author's Response: She sure is back! Much fun was had adding in sexy chef. Maybe he'll feature again. Who knows? Thank you kindly good sir.

Oooh this is gonna be good!!! I love this AU! Can’t wait to see how involved Roy and Pam are, but hopefully not too much, because Jam has definitely made a connection!! I hope that Pam looks him up on social and makes plans to show him her non-virtual art. I loved that great caption she’s posting with the Jim sketch too… so excited to read more and see where this is heading— I’m loving this start so far!! Great job and thanks for sharing your talent!!
Author's Response: Thank you! It's a lot of fun playing with how far along a storyline each character is here, and especially being in the modern day there's a lot that comes into play with this!

Ohhh I like this, haven't seen a college fic for ages. Looking forward to see how this goes! One question, is Pam actually with Roy at this point or is that just a memory of her having had a crappy dinner wit him?
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Yep, she is still with Roy at this stage, but wanted the relationship to be further along in this universe.
Date: July 23, 2023 04:43 pm Title: Chapter 1
This looks like a lot of fun. Pam already starting to find her own way in art. Jim instantly seeing she's good and encouraging her. She's bored with Roy. Looks like we could have room for a lot of fun here. Really looking forward to seeing how this new relationship with Jim pans out. Can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: It was fun to decide on their starting off points in this world, even without too many specifics. Thanks for the review!
